Michael Rastall was born and raised in the Chicagoland area later moving to attend college in Boston where he studied photography and design. Upon graduation from Boston University he moved to New York City and lived there for the next eight years working in various capacities throughout the professional photography industry. While art directing and photo editing for other photographers he perfected his own technique and approach to creating imagery. He has since moved back to the Midwest and today is a full-time wedding photographer. In any setting, large or small, he explores the richness and subtlety of human emotion. Conceptual, narrative, and always organic, his photography celebrates the essence of life. Michael lives with his wife and their two sons.
